One of the first accessories you should look into after buying a laptop is a good laptop shoulder bag to carry it around in. If you do a lot of daily traveling to an from your home, school or office, you want a shoulder bag that has a comfortable strap and plenty of extra storage compartments for a cell phone, iPod and other personal mobile electronic devices. Plus the inside of the bag needs to hold the laptop, or tablet, tight so as to not move around a lot when you’re walking or running for the bus.

The ironic thing about laptop computers is that they are not so great to place on your lap. They tend to overheat that way, and the viewing angle can end up putting some strain on your neck. A laptop desk for your home is a good solution, especially when they can be tilted, so that you can work more comfortably.
